The audio launch of debutant Dhruv Vikram’s Adithya Varma has become an emotional moment for the actor. “I would rate my dad as a better father than an actor. He took care of each and everything in this film for me. He has given more than one hundred per cent effort for Adithya Varma. My performance in the film is nothing but a younger version of him,” said Dhruv Vikram.
Later, Chiyaan Vikram also joined his son Dhruv on stage. “I wasn’t even tensed for the release of my own films but feeling the pressure now for Dhruv’s launch, it’s almost the same as conducting the marriage of my daughter. From the beginning, we understood that Dhruv is a creative guy so we allowed him to try whatever he wants in life,” said Chiyaan.
Vikram also thanked Sivakarthikeyan for accepting to pen a song in the film just over the phone and sent the lyrics within half-day. “Compared to the Telugu and Hindi versions of Arjun Reddy, Priya Anand’s role has come out well in the Tamil version. I should thank her for accepting this extended cameo,” added the actor.
Talking about fans, Vikram said, “My fans are the legacy which I leave behind for my son Dhruv.”
Interestingly, Dhruv delivered a few lines of dialogues from Adithya Varma and Vikram uttered a few lines from his breakthrough film Sethu. They also sang Yaen Ennai Pirindhaai track together on stage which received huge applause.
Adithya Varma’s director Gireesaaya said, “I troubled Dhruv a lot by asking two to three takes but retained his performance from the first take." The filmmaker then went on to call Dhruv as one of the best actors he has ever come across.
The film’s producer Mukesh Ratilal Mehta heaped praise on Vikram. “Vikram worked hard for the past nine months as a caring dad. He didn’t even behave like a star hero and dedicated his precious time for his son. If they act together in a film in 2021 or 2022, I’m sure it will break all the existing box office records.”
Adithya Varma is all set to release on November 8.
